About Me


  1. NYC May 19 I didn't recognize it even as a Sparrow when I saw it. Looking at video today, I'm wondering if it's a Savannah or Lincoln because every few years I've seen both in this area. Not enough color in the video to see clear markings -- except for the tan curve on its neck under its eye, which could mean Lincoln's. (The vid-caps aren't enhanced.) Thanks.
  2. what kind of sparrow is that? seen yesterday on Toronto. thanks
  3. I took a picture of this bird at the end of April in 2020 in Wisconsin. Also around that day were White-throated Sparrow and Red-Winged Blackbirds. I'm not sure if it is one of those femailes or possibly a young female or a whole different bird. They are not the best shots but hopefully are enough. Thanks in Advance Karen
  4. We have a bird feeder outside out kitchen window and see lots of House Finches (I think) but this new one came the other day and has stuck around. It's smaller than the rest but I'm unable to ID it. We are west of Boise, Idaho about an hour and it's January of 2021. Weather is upper 30s/low 40s during the day. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you!
  5. Hi, what kind of sparrow is that? I'm bad with Sparrows. 😞 thanks
  6. Distant photograph, in the rain, of a bird in an agricultural field. There were about ten Savannah sparrows in the field with it, but this one looked different, so I snapped a few pics. Raleigh, NC. Nov. 11, 2020. Grasshopper sparrow? The dark line at the base of the neck is something I'm not seeing in any photos of sparrows online or in guide books. Thanks! Scott
  7. New York City, Oct 8, 2020 I thought the Warbler might be a Yellow-rump, but I didn't see the yellow rump. I didn't get a good look of the one I labeled Swamp Sparrow, or maybe it's a Song Sparrow. I definitely saw a White Throat or 2, I could see the yellow. But I don't see the yellow on this one. I think the third one is a Song Sparrow. Thanks.
  8. The best match I can find is Dickcissel. Corpus Christi, Texas just the other day.
  9. Southeastern Washington State (zip 99352), size of a Robin or Starling. NOT coloring of starling I have ever seen! Brown, not black. Color pattern on back wings same as a sparrow. Certainly not a sparrow, tho, either! All by "himself" at the feeder. Ate sunflower seeds in gulps!
  10. Is this another song sparrow or did I spot something different this time? I was thinking it might be a Lincoln's... This was sighted in a farmer's field around noon on the Bruce Peninsula (near Lion's Head) in Ontario, Canada. Thanks!
  11. It’s black has yellow stripe under its eyes long pointy bill it made a nest in one of my outdoor buildings had 4 white eggs in it that are now hatched.
  12. Could this be a chipping sparrow? I didn't think they were this grey.

  14. hi, is that a fox sparrow? seen yesterday in Toronto. thx
  15. Is this an American Tree or Chipping Sparrow? Today in Chambersburg, PA.
  16. Hello, I saw this sparrow on my deck today in Maryland. I am guessing it is Leucistic Sparrow. I am not which sparrow. The front looked like a Song Sparrow or part White-throated Sparrow, not sure which one. IMG_1741A by Eileen, on Flickr IMG_1738A by Eileen, on Flickr Thanks for your reply, Eileeninmd
  17. HI, can you please help me identify those birds? I saw them in February in Algonquin Park, Ontario.
  18. Hello, Forum! Yesterday I took my very first birding outing on the West Coast in Hansen's Dam Park in Los Angeles. I had some trouble ID-ing the birds in the following photos. As always, your help is greatly appreciated. One of them (the last photo) nay very well be a feral pet. Thanks, all! 1. Can't tell if this first bird is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet or a Hutton's Vireo 1-a by degibox, on Flickr 1-b by degibox, on Flickr 2. Immature White-crowned Sparrow? Or something else? 2a by degibox, on Flickr 2b by degibox, on Flickr 3. Pretty sure this is a Yellow-Rumped Warbler, but just double checking 3 by degibox, on Flickr 4. These pictures are bad and this'll be tough. 4a by degibox, on Flickr 4b by degibox, on Flickr 5. What hawk is this? 5 by degibox, on Flickr 6. Feral pet? 6 by degibox, on Flickr
  19. On Feb 07, 2020 - we were at the San Pedro River National Riparian Conservation Area. We parked at the San Pedro House located off AZ-SR90 east of Sierra Vista, AZ. We had walked the trail along the San Pedro River going south and then around the pond then on trail back to the parking lot. We spotted the bird below in Cottonwood. Using my camera to shoot long range (I did not have my zoom lens installed) I tried to snap as many pictures as I could. Below is enlargements of what we saw. At first we thought it was the Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet but the more we looked at resources I leaned to the Rufous-winged Sparrow, then more looking and found it also could be the Botteri's Sparrow. I'm not sure my photos provide enough information but I thought I'd give it try here to see if anyone might know what we saw for sure. Thanks for all your help.

  20. Date: 11/9/19 Where: Ace Basin NWR in Beaufort County SC There were many many Swamp & Song Sparrows everywhere. This sparrow seemed different to me but could be some variation that I am not familiar with in this area. Hoping for help with a solid ID.
  21. Hi, I saw this bird in Toronto 2 weeks ago. Is it an immature white-crowned sparrow? thx
  22. Please help me identify this Sparrow (?). It was seen at a feeder on Michelle ST in Fremont.
